NMDC holds plantation drive at Hyderabad head office

HYDERABAD: On the occasion of World Environment Day, the NMDC organised a plantation drive and conducted competitions like essay writing and poster making at its head office in Hyderabad on Wednesday. Participants also took a pledge to nurture nature.

Addressing the gathering, Amitava Mukherjee, chief managing director (CMD), NMDC, said, “Earth is the only planet that supports life and has the potential to heal itself, but the question arises who will heal us? Are we living responsibly and preserving the resources for future generations? We need to take care of our carbon footprint at an individual level. Our steps are directly related to intergenerational equity, so make a wise and sustainable choice for a better tomorrow.”
